This month's Book Club selection was Reading the Man by Elizabeth Brown Pryor. It is a wonderful book about Robert E. Lee based on his personal letters. It really helped me look at the South from a different perspective.
As hostess, I made Bourbon Bread Pudding, which was as close as I could come to a Southern-style dessert! It was easy to make, smelled delicious, and had a nice homey taste and texture. Rich thinks that it would benefit from more bourbon, but I was quite happy with it.
